YEA!!! Thanks Koysta and the AM Team.

However, I just download from that link and the installed version shows 1.16.0-1134-dev.

Something failed - probably failed to installed.

The build is 1167 (it's in the filename too) and I just tried downloading and installing - it worked fine.

Very odd. I had been running 1.15.0-916-stable. Today I downloaded and installed 1-16-0.1167-stable and for whatever reason, I wound up with 1134-dev installed. I -did- install 1134 when it first came out and removed it in favor of 916 due to the (lack of) solid account list colors. Now I uninstalled 916 and tried 1167 again and then restored my settings and accounts and all is well.

Thanks again for listening to your public and restoring the account list colors.

An option to choose would be better, right?

Thanks to the team, especially to the designer @Ipetkov for bringing back the 'lost' account colors.  8)

BTW:
I appreciated the small colored border to the left of each folder, which came first with build 1.16.0.1140-dev :)

We got complaints that "the new design" (of account colors) completely lost its practical purpose.

And so were restored "the old design" (of account colors).

Until doing that - today - there wasn't any feedback like "oh please bring back old solid colors but keep folder bands", it was all like "color bands bad, solid fill good".

And so here it is - back to solid fill. Practical aspect of account colors - restored.

Understand.

Though, ... I can't find any complaints about "new color bands are bad" - at least not here in the forum  :D -, but "we miss the solid account colors, please bring them back".

However, a few more opinions from other users would certainly be very helpful.

Re: Oh yes, there was (implicitly). I'll post the link again.

Yes and there were other ideas too, like color icons (refresh / expand).

Overall though - the "consensus" was that "color bars just aren't visible enough, solid fill was" - so we restored solid fill.

Anyone happy? Anyone at all? No?

Was this all for nothing?

Yes sure there is always room for improvement - absolutely.

However the one change we just made - and this is based on user feedback, not just here on the forum but also to our support email account (from the Google Play "beta") -

- We restored "solid fill" for "account colors"

because

- "Your new color bars are not enough"

Yes there were other changes in the design update:

Smaller font size for account names, better alignment of various elements, icons on all folder types, refresh / expand icons switched sides, maybe others I'm forgetting.

Overall those other changes - and "the big picture" - didn't cause any complaints, the opposite in fact, seems like most users liked them.

But on this one specific thing (account colors) we had nothing but complaints. If anyone liked "color bars" - they didn't speak up.

And so based on the feedback we *had* (as opposed to "might have had but didn't") - we changed back to solid color fill.

I don't like this bubble gum look.

I prefer to have either or both the refresh icon and account name in color.

This would look much nicer and be visible yet not knock you over the head.

RE: I don't like this bubble gum look
The choice of colors is completely configurable and therefore the responsibility of the user.

As for account name colors, this would not work:
The font must be readable with all available themes and that is very unfavorable, especially with lighter colors.

With a colored background and black text, the readability is much better.
